Jeremy Vine continues his one-man war on ‘bad drivers’ as BBC star is told to ‘f*** off’ by angry motorist who failed to stop as the cyclist approached a junction


This is the heated moment a car driver told Jeremy Vine was told to ‘f*** off’ after the motorist pulled out in front of the BBC presenter. 

Vine was cycling in King Street, Hammersmith, West London, when he witnessed a black Ford Ford Fiesta cutting across the cycle lane.

Tooting at the ‘petrosexual’ driver, Vine is forced to pull out onto the road to give the motorist ‘more space to stop and correct his mistake’. 

But the fuming driver appeared less than impressed by the BBC star’s reaction, which was caught on Vine’s helmet camera.

‘Oh f*** off, typical f***ing cyclist. I stopped didn’t I?’ says the man – before then turning into a no-entry road, where oncoming traffic forces him to stop.

In a video of the the incident, 58-year-old father-of-two Vine writes: ‘Interesting that this petrosexual stops without hesitation when he’s faced with an oncoming car. When it’s a cyclist, he abuses them.’ 

The incident is the latest altercation captured on 360-degree camera by cycling champion, Vine. who is on a relentless mission to shame London‘s dodgy drivers. 

Vine, who has been described as ‘willing to die in defence of the Highway Code’, has caught dozens of people out during his regular commutes around the capital. 

His quest has seen him catching foreign diplomats using their mobiles behind the wheel and van drivers dangerously cutting him up.

Capturing all the drama on his 360-degree camera and sharing it on social media, the 58-year-old TV personality has even threatened to report reckless drivers to cops.

But his actions have proven far from popular with some of his ‘petrosexual’ critics, as he calls them, being quick to blast Vine online. 

Earlier this year, MailOnline revealed all the spots across the capital where the famous cycling champion has called out drivers for causing mayhem. 

Channel 5 and BBC host Jeremy Vine says drivers should not be allowed to overtake cyclists at all and motorists don't like the fact those on bikes are faster than them in cities

Since January, he has shared dozens of videos of driving that has left the presenter fuming – with many of the clips showing near-misses.

In one, filmed on September 13, Vine was almost run over by an incompetent van driver in Tavistock Square, Central London. 

In a video, uploaded by to his social media account on X – formerly Twitter –  the dodgy driver left the presenter’s bike in a crumpled heap on the road. 

The video showed Vine cycling down a road before entering a junction where a white van can be seen driving towards him on the other side of the road. 

The vehicle then turns right across the path of Vine forcing him to stop and repeatedly honk his bike horn.

He then gets behind the van, which begins reversing into him and Vine then uses both hands to slam the back of the truck to make it stop.

In another incident, he can be seen cycling along Tavistock Place in West London. 

The scene seems peaceful enough, but Vine sees danger approaching in the form of a van beginning to make a right turn – directly into his path. 

‘He’s not turning right this guy?’ Vine says, incredulously, as the van begins it’s turning cycle. 

‘No No No No NO!’, Vine can be heard screaming as he takes evasive action, ‘Jesus, this guy.’ 

Captioning the video, Vine said: ‘STOP THIS. It’s making it dangerous to use a bicycle.’

And on September 6, Vine claimed to catch out a foreign diplomat off-guard using a mobile phone before they bragged ‘I don’t have licence’.

The incident took place in Kensington High Street,  opposite the entrance to Kensington Palace Gardens where a host of foreign embassies are based. 

‘Look at this guy, he doesn’t even see me,’ says Vine after spotting the driver on his phone. 

He catches up with the man – thought to be driving an Omani diplomatic vehicle – and shouts ‘six points on your licence’ to which the male quips ‘Good boy! I don’t have a licence’.
